Having just received a new TNIV last week.. I wanted to say, I really like it. And I wanted to give others the chance to point out it's positive points. It has been slandered by some since it's inception in 2001.. some have gone to great lengths to slander this word of God. Even to misquoting some of it's verses.. I like it because, while reading it, the scenes come alive in my mind. I have had a lot of fun reading it this week, and can't seem to put it down.
